  1. Hi everyone,
    my site is running on thematic, with a custom child theme.

    I'd like to do a lighweight mobile version of the site - not necessarily smart phones but also older phones -,
    thing is I have no idea where to start.

    I assume everything can be appended in the function.php of my current chidtheme, but I don't have any idea how to tell thematic to load or unload some elements/pages etc... if the user is accessing the site from a mobile device/phone.

    Could anybody please explain me the basics or at least put me in the right direction to achieve that?
    Thanks much in advance.

  2. I've found this method. Do you think it might work with Thematic?

  3. I know this is a bit of a cop-out reply, and a little late, but...after monkeying around with mobile support for a couple days, I decided to stick with the Wordpress Mobile Pack plugin. So many devices/browsers...so little time. I'm not a big fan of using 3rd party plugins for things I want core to the theme, but these guys have put alot of time into ensuring proper detection and theme switching, and it works with MU (blog networks). Now all I have to do is worry about styling.
